We returned to Phil Stefani's 437 because of the very good food, service and ambiance. When we entered on the Saturday evening at 8pm, I was shocked not to see the typical busy environment. Our group of 6 had a very good dinner. The service was excellent. Disappointed to learn that this was the last week for the restaurant before it closed its door.

We make it a point to eat at this restaurant every time we are in Chicago. I am devoted to their "Tomahawk Rib Eye" which never fails to please. Appetizers are great (this time we shared the Bruschetta and the Mozzarella and tomatoes). Salads are generous and very good. we make sure to make room for at least some dessert.
Our only regret is that we don't live in Chicago so we can dine here more often

We love coming to 437!! The service is always the best! I can't say enough about the service; extremely attentive without being overbearing. And the food.... OH MY.... fantastic and a wide variety. From salad to appetizers to main courses to deserts....... the food is fantastic. I've had steaks, seafood, sandwiches and more..... I love it all.

This past time, I had the salmon and it was fantastic! Prepared perfectly! Hard to believe I could get seafood and not steak and be so happy, but it was that good!

I highly recommend 437!!!!

Great prime filets cooked perfectly. All of the sides are shareable in size. Good cocktails and excellent service.

Out of towner couple spending our NYE in Chicago. Got in the hunt for a dinner spot kind of late but still about 10 days out and favorite spots were already booked. Found 437 Rush on Open Table and it fit the bill perfectly as it was an Italian Steakhouse, not just one or the other! We were never to any of the Stefani establishments so didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. Top notch! We sat in a booth in the bar area and at least one of us was very happy to see the college games on TV from our table. We dined on petite filet and ribeye both cooked to perfection, shared the large salad, had the mushrooms and brussel sprouts as sides. We had no left-overs! Staff made us feel very welcome on our first visit. We will definitely return again to try the Italian side of the menu.

I have been to this restaurant in the past but I have not been there in the last two years.
Even though the food and service was good this restaurant has definitely lost some of its luster.
With all the great eating spots in Chicago, I don't know that I would visit this establishment any
time soon.

The steak was good, but not outstanding...there are much better choices in Chicago. The service was good, but nothing special. The atmosphere was nice, but not noteworthy. This is just an average experience. I was kicking myself that in walking distance is Shaw's and Joe's. Go to either one of those places for a dining experience to talk about.

My client suggested this place as it was near him but he hadn't been there. The service was tremendous and the food was equally good. I would definitely recommend it. I hope it does well as lunch was very slow.

Its been years since I've dined here and I am angry that it took so long to get back. Our server was amazing and the atmosphere is warm and lively. The food is spectacular and the wine list is broad with something for all tastes and price ranges.

The only complaint I have is that they stuck my wife and myself in a small corner table that we had to use bench seating with and was not the most comfortable.

My husband and I always dine here on our trips to Chicago. I especially appreciate the warm ambiance on cool, rainy evenings-it is welcoming and I always enjoy the "family-like" feel. Great steaks and pasta.

The food and service was great. The wine list was a little intimidating but out server was a great help. This is definitely a place for a date night. I would not recommend bringing the kids as the menu is more for adults. I think the chef did an outstanding job on the food. Everything was delicious.

Rude and the service was good also .

More of a business mans steakhouse than a romantic restaurant

Very good location.

One of the best shanks I've had in years, complimented by fine pairings. My wife had the filet done to perfection.

First visit to Phil's and was not disappointed. The Sea Bass was great, cooked to perfection! Service was fantastic and the place was hopping!

Would recommend this to anyone if you are in Chicago!

Bar service was very good. I spent an hour at the bar before the rest of my party arrived. Food was presented well, prepared as ordered and tasted great. Service was good, well attended to.
